Sony is really working on a new flagship full frame mirrorless camera called Sony A9 (Sony Alpha 9). Aimed at professional photographers, the new Sony A9 full frame mirrorless camera will have dual XQD card slot and it will be capable of Unlimited RAW shooting! So amazing! And the Sony A9 will be a DSLR-like shooter, bigger than Sony A7RII, smaller than Canon 5D Mark III.

A anonymous reader sent a message to SonyAlphaRumors saying that the Sony A9 full frame mirrorless camera will have 72MP sensor and this amazing camera will be released in early fall 2016:

I looked closer and noticed the user (short chubby guy with red goatee) was using a Sony GM 24-70mm f/2.8 lens on the body.

The photographer was pretty uncomfortable when I started asking questions. But I can say this. It was in fact a Sony A9(?!?) proto type, it is slightly larger than the A7R ii however it does not have a built in battery grip. Good things are it does have dual card slots, definitely sd maybe cfast, I really don’t know much about different cards, but he did say it has 2. It has a joystick for autofocus point moving. But most importantly, when he showed me the joystick, the spot where it would say 42M on my a7rii, it said Extra Fine 72M!!

He said this was one of a few prototypes out there and that it was due out end of summer for early fall release (can’t say this is real or not).

The announcement date of Sony A9 is rumored for Photokina 2016 in this September. So it makes sense for the early fall release. What do you think about this?
